As unbelievable as it may feel, Iowa’s regular season finale is already here. The Hawkeyes have rattled off five straight wins coming into a senior day showdown with the Wisconsin Badgers. The Badgers, however, have seen much of their season cancelled due to COVID-19. They enter the matchup at 2-2 and riding a two-game losing skid.
Despite the different trajectories, Wisconsin has always presented a unique challenge for Iowa and the Hawkeyes haven’t beaten the Badgers since 2015. If Iowa wants to change that in their final regular season game, they’ll need to see more of the Spencer Petras they saw in the second half against Illinois and more of the same stingy defense they’ve shown all year.
